Nollywood actress, Maryam Charles has taken to social media platform to share her stand on physical abuse against women and she is not sugarcoating any of it.
Gender violence against women is one of the fundamental issues in the society. However, women are becoming courageous to speak out against this crime and Maryam Charles is one of them.
Although it is unknown what triggered the Nollywood actress to speak on domestic violence, it is indeed refreshing to know her position on the issue. In a lengthy post, she condemned the act, stating that she sees no sense in why a real man would hit a woman.
She wrote,"Everytime I hear a story where a man is said to have beaten up a woman, my heart bleeds. I just cannot understand it. Why would you do that to someone you claim to respect and in some cases love? It just doesn't make sense. And some men wonder why women are beginning to embrace a toxic form of feminism that involves hating men. Why wouldn't they?
When some men think God placed them on this earth to lord over ladies. Let me shock you, that thing between your legs doesn't make you more important than any woman out there. It's just an organ that helps you pass your waste, it doesn't make you a man!
Real men do not hit women. They do not think physical violence is the only way to make a woman fear them or put them under control. Real men do not believe in slaps or kicks or whatever. Treat a woman right and she will be yours in more ways than one. Treat her well and I dare say she will be 'submi*sive.'
I for one feel men who beat women should be punished to the full extent of the law. If a register can be created where thier names can be placed so future partners will know what they are getting into, the better.
Let me say this loud and clear, you are not a man if you beat women. #stillondomesticviolence #saynotodomesticviolence #MaryamCharles
